Ksh (newest)

  I recently installed the new version of "ksh" from the archive on
"cheops" and was disappointed to find that it doesn't cooperate with
"vi" very well.  I *often* use
	:!mv % orig/%
when I'm hacking on something received over the net and have been
very disappointed to find that it now fails because "vi" sets the
high bit on each character of "%" when expanding it and "ksh" apparently
doesn't strip them like "sh" and the old "ksh" used to.  (This is of
course only 1 example of the sort of thing the "%" character is handy
  I guess the only idea that comes to mind would be to zap the code
in "vi" which does this, but I'd sure prefer a simpler solution.
I also worry a little about unforeseen consequences.
